Apologies for the rambling nature of this post. My brain is still recovering from the inevitable lack of sleep from an incredible weekend visiting one of my best friends. Those of you on Facebook, I'm sure, have noticed the "On This Day" feature . . . where it shows you back through the years what you were posting, doing, etc. on this day in years past. Often, I look at the status updates and wonder what I was possibly doing . . . and other times they serve as a reminder of how far I've come in my faith and life journey. And, more often than not, they remind me just how blessed my life has been and is.

Take a moment today to think about the blessings in your life, both present and past. Thank God for them. And don't take them for granted! Today I am grateful for family and friends. And especially the wonderful gift of modern technology and transportation - the things that allow me to keep close to my friends even when 1000s of miles separate us.
